Ha! Mine was in 82...and I was feeling so outta touch with all the folks there.

I felt old THEN. Had knee surgery that year...geeez.

Strangely, I didn't even get to the times of the real trouble (the "touch head" thread comments about crashers, etc.).

Haven't we beaten that to death, though? Funny thing is, the late-era heads who populate this board are, by and large, I suspect, pretty far removed from the people we are complaining about when we complain about late-era heads, but they take it personally anyway. I probably would too. But it was the Touch-heads, the In-the-Darkers, the "Miracle" heads, who drove me away from the scene. That and the fact that I just hated seeing them only in big outdoor venues: I missed the little New England hockey rinks of yore!

BMW's in the parking lots after In the Dark made the BB charts signified the start of the end for me. There was a palpable sense of hooliganism from that point on that definitely drove me from the scene by 1990. Had I not been fortunate enough to be at the Branford show at Nassau that year I may never have come back. But i digress.

I'm in the Road Trips are OK for slicing camp, at least on this latest release. Those are two stellar -74 shows, we can all agree. What I see is they included the best stuff, w/maybe a couple of exceptions here and there.

Bottom line--I'd rather shell out $20 for 3 excellent discs than $80 for a full run of shows i'm simply NOT going to listen to in their entirety.

just make the sound A++ is all I ask.

Oh, and the best CHINA>RIDER from '74 (and maybe best ever) is 2/24 anyway. Just thought i'd toss that in to stir the pot.

The partial releases used bug the hell out of me but now I simply replace the existing files/songs with the RT releases to make up the whole show. With this method the partial RT releases do work as you get the meat of two shows upgraded.

As good as the 2-24 China-Rider is, I always thought that the best one of the year was played in Providence.

I must also put a word in for my very first show in Saratoga on this day in '83. To be 18 and carefree, those were the days. BTW where are the SBDs for this and the MPP shows?

Hmmmmm. If I had used your approach to choosing a screen name, I'd be Oaktown89.
